Gerbil Wheel Elevator


Because, apparently, stairs are too easy, some Estonian designers have proposed these human-powered elevators.  It looks like a heck of a lot of fun, probably considerably more fun than stairs, and requires absolutely no electricity.  However, it doesn't look cheaper, easier or safer than stairs, so they probably won't be widely implemented. 

It's an interesting rethinking of the elevator nonetheless, and I love the accompanying drawing.  And the innovation itself might be enough for it to be implemented in interesting architectural spaces like outdoor gardens or art museums.

Gore v. Clinton in 08?

It seems like a lot of speculation about former veep Al Gore running for president{mosimage} in 2008 stems from recent press coverage of how can i buy cialis in canada his various green endeavors -- particularly his global warming film, "An Inconvenient Truth."

Of course, if all it took to get elected were movies and press coverage, why any old movie star could -- say, wait a minute.

Anyway, the Wall Street Journal has a nice, easy piece on the ifs, ors and buts of a Gore campaign. Wouldn't it be something if Gore came back as the smart, forward-thinking environmentalist that he seems to be in the private sector?

When you move, it's electric

How are "nanogenerators" like aphrodisiacs? They turn body movement into electricity.
Clever folks at the online pharmacies Georgia Institute of Technology have built a tiny prototype generator that generates electricity through the flexing of zinc oxide nanowires.

"This could be beneficial for soldiers in the field, who now depend on batteries to generic levitra canadian healthcare power their electrical equipment. As long as the soldiers were moving, they could generate electricity."
Or, you could envision dancing monkeys wearing shoes with nanogenerators in them. I know which one I prefer.
